Solution:
QUESTION: 12

In which method of determining total hardness of water is based on the premise that hardness producing substance react with soap and form insoluble compounds before lather is produced?

Solution:

In Clark’s method, total hardness is found by determining the standard soap solution required to obtain permanent lather with the water sample of known volume.

QUESTION: 22

The joint used for joining the plain ends of cast iron pipes, is

Solution:

Solution: (c)

Cast Iron pipes possess high strength. They are structurally stronger to withstand tensile, compressive as well as bending stresses. They can be easily acted upon by the acids present in sewer.

Types of Joints:

Bell and Spigot joints: Plain or Reinforced Concrete pipes.

Collar Joints: Concrete Pipes for larger diameter.

Simplex Joints/ Ring tie coupling: Asbestos Cement Pipes

Flexible or Bituminous Joints: Similar to collar joint but instead of cement mortar bitumen is used to make a joint

Mechanical Joint: Used for metallic sewers like Cast Iron, Steel etc. E.g. Dresser Coupling Joint

QUESTION: 23

Consider the following statements :

The basic difference between water pipes and sewer pipes is

1. in the material used for the pipes

2. in the pressure of the liquid flow

3. in the suspended solids they carry

Which of these statements is/are correct ?

Solution:
QUESTION: 24

By using economical diameter of water mains, the benefit obtained is in terms of

Solution:
QUESTION: 25

High pH value of water in the pipe does not produce

Solution:

PH is really a measure of the relative amount of free hydrogen and hydroxyl ions in the water. Water that has more free hydrogen ions is acidic, whereas water that has more free hydroxyl ions is basic. Since pH can be affected by chemicals in the water, pH is an important indicator of water that is changing chemically.
